Shinji IKARI

Shinji is the pilot of Evangelion Unit 01. Deeply disturbed, he often attempts to run from his problems. Despite this, he has unusually high synch rates with Unit 01, even when he is forced to pilot it with no previous training. Shinji's mother died when he was very young, leaving him with his father, Gendo Ikari. Due to feelings of abandonment as a young child and Gendo's very cold demeanor, Shinji feels a certain amount of malice towards his dad. Fighting his inner demons, he also is very impacted by Gendo's occasional praise and continually seeks his acceptance.

He does a good job at portraying a normal teen boy. I like how despite being shy, he has sexual desires, like any real person has, and is problematic, instead of being a 100% pure and good person because of his outside personality, like this type of character uses to be.

I’m surprised this guy is hated

Shinji Ikari deserves love than hate. He suffered too much, witness his mother killed, his father abandoned him for a decade, keeps rejecting him, suffers through daddy issues, lives with the abusive Asuka, killed Kaworu, and worst of all, lost his chance of living. He's relatable and memorable. The greatest anime character of all time.

Blame his scumbag father for how he turn out.

Yukiteru is even worse.

Kiwi1994 Aug 24, 2018

Poor boy, he's depressed & how everyone deal with it? They force him to risk his life ... for the sake of what? If he died who would care? They just want him to pilot unit 01 just because he has a high synch rates with it.

Imagine your only family member calling you just to use you, they don't actually care for you ...

& should I remind everyone that he's only 14?
